ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Marie-Pierre Stark Flora and Guillaume Herbette met in 2014 in New York when Marie-Pierre was looking for a team to train for her first triathlon. They soon discovered their common passion for sports, science and clean beauty as well as their ties to a breathtaking island in the Mediterranean, Corsica. That was the beginning of an incredibly rich partnership. Inspired by their shared passions, Marie-Pierre and Guillaume decided to create their unique line of clean beauty products in Corsica during the summer of 2019. HERB+FLORA was born!
A former L’Oréal, Estée Lauder and Coty executive, Marie-Pierre is an entrepreneur, marketing & sales expert in the beauty space with a passion for branding and product development. Marie-Pierre was the Founder and CEO of iluminage, inc., a beauty tech company funded by Unilever Ventures. French-born with Corsican roots, Marie Pierre is based in New York where she has spent the last 25 years.
